Becoming distance parents is an act of love that changes a child’s life.
PYou can help him-her grow and have enough food, better sanitary conditions, the chance to go to school and opportunities for the future, protecting them from abuse and dangers to which children are subjected in the Southern hemisphere. Your donation, with less than 50 cents a day, changes a child’s fate and helps develop a decent life for all the family and the community. Adopting a child means sustaining the family.
Insieme per mano deals with children living in two slums of Calcutta: Shalimar and Martinpara. We help children grow in their living environment together with their family, respecting their cultural traditions and their spiritual values.
HOW IT WORKS
To start the distance adoption you can:
1- fill out and send the adoption card (Download the form);
2- make the payment on a semi-annual or annual basis. The contribution is 192 Euros per year (96 Euros per semester);
3- after activating the support you will receive the child’s presentation form, a photograph and the description of the place in which he-she lives.
The contacts between the child and the adoptive family are maintained by the association as autonomous postal communications are difficult. You will receive regular news about his-her state of health, his-her personal and educational progress; if you want you can personally come to Calcutta to meet him-her.
For more information or to meet us personally, you can contact our telephone number 39 349 3002668 or write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be happy to answer and talk about our Children!
Adoptive parents can decide whether to activate the semi-annual or annual payment.
Insieme per mano advises PERMANENT bank transfer payment.
WHY TO CHOOSE THE PERMANENT BANK TRANSFER:
Bank Transfer can be permanently activated requesting permission to your bank and defining the payment periodicity. It’s practical because it is automatic and you can terminate it at any time. This gives Insieme per mano a regular contribution to plan and allocate the funds received with lower costs.
As an alternative you can support our activities through Pay pall or Bank ordinary transfer.
- Donations by bank transfer.

What is the contribution for a distance adoption?
Distance adoption of a child takes less than 60 cents a day, equal to 16 euro per month. The annual total is 192 €.
You can choose to donate annually or semiannually. If there are problems, we can assess together the quarterly or monthly payment.
How long does distance adoption last?
Distance adoption requires a minimum commitment of three years. It is "only" a moral obligation, not a legal one.
If necessary, you can interrupt your help in advance, alerting the Association.
Usually it lasts until the end of the child’s education.
What will I receive as a parent?
In addition to the first photograph of the children with their information and the description of the situation of the area in which they live and the project we want to pursue, you will receive:
- two messages a year by the child;
- a newsletter from the community and a report to be updated on what is taking place with your contribution and to learn more about the community;
- a new photograph of the child, every year.
How do you decide who to help?
Our contact person in Calcutta visit periodically slums and villages and collects needs and emergencies, which may be of any kind! For distance adoptions sometimes there are new children or sometimes children who have lost parents have additional needs. The next step is that to send as soon as possible resources to support them.
How do you send the money?
The collected money is sent quarterly to our contact person in Calcutta and then allocated in the centers where children live. There are other people we trust who deal with the daily use of the money for children’s and their families’ needs. The leaders of Insieme per mano (always at their own expense) regularly travel to the region to verify the actions success. The children’s history and their development are constantly and rigorously documented.
How does the communication between adoptive parents and adopted child take place?
Contacts between children and adoptive parents are maintained by the association since postal communications in autonomy are difficult and unreliable. You can write and send photos whenever you want to establish a relationship as deep as possible with the child. You can do it in English or in Italian and we will translate it. You will be regularly updated about the state of their health, their personal and educational progress and if you want you can personally come to Calcutta to meet them.
What should I do if my letters do not receive an answer?
The association wants to monitor communications between children and adoptive parents and to understand the reason for delay in responses. In any case you can contact us by phone or email.
Can I send gifts?
We ask not to send gifts to adopted children: this could cause inequalities and jealousy between the members of the community. It is possible to make gifts to the whole group of children (toys, clothes, etc ...) and we will allocate them.
How does tax deduction work?
Your donation entitles you to receive tax benefits provided by law. It is important to keep the payment transfer receipt. The association will send you a certificate of the payment with the receipt you can attach to your tax return. For individuals, adoption is deductible from the taxable income in the amount of 10% of the total income, and in any case, for an annual amount not exceeding EUR 70,000. Alternatively, donations are deductible from gross tax income in the amount of 26% of the donation and, in any case, up to a maximum of € 2,065 for each tax year.
What are the Micro-projects / solidarity Gifts?
They are short-term projects designed to support the whole community rather than a single person. They may be structural (wells, sanitation, health facilities, purchase of equipment etc ...) or in support of social independence (sewing machines, rickshaws).
